Dunkin' Donuts is challenging Starbucks again this year.
The doughnut chain announced what it has planned for this holiday season.
From cups to new treats, Dunkin' is hoping you'll stop buy during the hustle and bustle of the next two months.
Dunkin' is introducing new Crème Brulée macchiatos, lattes and coffees. It is also bringing back Peppermint Mochas and keeping this fall's Salted Caramel.
As for its food offerings, Dunkin' has come up with a new Candy Cane Crunch doughnut and Boston Kreme croissant doughnut. On the savory side, stores are bringing back the Sweet Black Pepper Bacon breakfast sandwich.
But what's turning heads this year is the company's Christmas cups.
Gone are the traditional Dunkin' Donuts brown and orange colors, replaced with the word Joy and icons of the season in red with green highlights on a white background.
Images of Starbuck's Christmas cups were leaked online recently.
This year, Starbucks has printed two different cups that will be released in the next few weeks.
One is red with a drawing of a bird and holly. The other is green with a white circle, covered in sketches of people.
"During a divisive time in our county, Starbucks wanted to create a symbol of unity as a reminder of our shared values, and the need to be good to each other," Starbucks chairman and CEO Howard Schultz said in a statement, explaining the design.
